The finest Australian cuisine in an unsurpassed setting is precisely what guests will experience at the 'Best of Australia at qualia' Great Barrier Feast event from 12-14 July 2013.

Part of Hamilton Island's illustrious Great Barrier Feast food and wine series, Peter Gilmore of Sydney's world-renowned Quay restaurant, Dan Hunter of the highly acclaimed Royal Mail Hotel in Dunkeld, Victoria and award-winning, Scottish-born Executive Chef, Alastair Waddell from the Island's qualia resort will dish up a gourmet culinary weekend unlike any other.

Peter and Dan will each present an AEG Masterclass at Hamilton Island's iconic Yacht Club, providing guests with an exclusive opportunity to learn their unique cooking techniques and processes, and sample their cuisine.

The pinnacle of the weekend will unfold on Saturday evening as the sun sets over the glittering Coral Sea. The Showpiece Dinner held in qualia's Long Pavilion will be a 6-course degustation tour de force jointly created by these three accomplished chefs. Peter, Dan and Alastair will each prepare two dishes using produce sourced from some of Australia's best growers and suppliers, complimented with wines personally selected and introduced by celebrated Australian wine expert, James Halliday.

Throughout the dinner guests will also be able to watch these chefs and their teams in action via live camera link up to the kitchen, whilst esteemed restaurant critic and columnist Simon Thomsen emcees.

Hosted by the Best Resort in the World*, the 'Best of Australia at qualia' offers an unparalleled gastronomic experience starring two of the country's most lauded chefs over one incredible weekend, and all without their restaurant waiting lists. Previous stars of the Great Barrier Feast series have included Tetsuya Wakuda, Ben Shewry, Guillaume Brahimi, Frank Camorra and Justin North.
